Am very new to SharePoint. I have got stuck into a strange issue.

On Prod server SPFieldUserValue.User.Email giving an email address which as been deleted. Actually, there were 2 users with the same name in 2 diff domains e.g. james@abc.com and james@def.com the james@def.com user was deleted. However, still, it is fetching james@def.com on Prod server. But when I debug on dev server it get's james@abc.com The AD is same for both servers.

Any help / hint is hugely appreciated.



It looks like the second user profile still exists in SharePoint , so to overcome this issue , In production server just try to remove the second user from User Information List by navigating to


Check the user and from actions menu selects delete users from the site collection.
